Maui Mayor Arakawa will unveil his proposed budget for the 2013 Fiscal Year this Friday, March 23, during a presentation in the Council Chambers.
The budget proposal was described as “an illustration of the county administration’s belief in vision and action.”
In developing the proposed budget, Mayor Arakawa asked county departments to strategically evaluate their current operations, their purpose, how they achieve that purpose and what they use to measure success.
“This was a bold challenge, a change from the way that we’ve always done it,” said Mayor Arakawa in a statement today. “But it is truly a change to make sure that our action has vision and our vision is put into action. This transition to results-based budgeting is an ongoing process but one that will reap benefits for decades to come.”
The budget presentation is set to start at 9 a.m.
